The 666 is not physical, it is spriritual. No amount numerical characters are
the mark. It is the the sixth seal, sixth vial, sixth trump, boom, instead of Christ,
the anti-Christ. Proclaiming to be Christ.
@ SHAMAR- So what, they broke the covenant:
Deuteronomy 32:21 They (the Jews) have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation (the Arabs, before the advent of Islam).
Jesus reiterated this:
Matthew 21:43 Therefore say I (Jesus) unto you, The kingdom of God (His covenant) shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof (the Arabs).
Show me a scripture from the Bible where during Jesus' lifetime he was called Emmanuel. Please, show me where someone said; hey, Emmanuel, come here or something like that.
Yes, they did break the covenant, but God did not. Mal 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. The blessing was given through the line of Isaac, not Ismael and God does not change. That is why your interpretation of Matthew 21:43 is flawed and wishful thinking.
"Matthew 21:43 Therefore say I (Jesus) unto you, The kingdom of God (His covenant) shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof (the Arabs)". The kingdom of God is not the same as the Covenant of God.
Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
Finally, there is a very specific reason why Jesus HAD to die!! It is one of God's laws that nothing but his death would fullfil, Go back and study the Bible and find out why, then you will see the fallacy of Islam's understanding about this.
Mt 13:33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in THREE measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. Three major religions in the world, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. Go back, find out what the leaven is, where it started and know that God will straighten it out one day. Ps 11:3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? Lots of destroyed foundations.....in all three religions!!
@ VENNOYE- You posted: "Yes, they did break the covenant, but God did not. "
I agree the Jews broke the covenant, God did not. You're right, God does not change, people change!
You mentioned the word "blessing". You posted: "The blessing was given through the line of Isaac, not Ismael and God does not change."
There's a difference between a "blessing" and a "covenant". God told Abraham He would bless Ishmael, but that His covenant would be through Isaac. But the children of Isaac broke the covenant just like God knew they would do before it happened because God knows ALL things.
Moses even said so:
Deuteronomy 9:24 Ye have been rebellious against the Lord from the day that I knew you.
The fact that the Jews broke the covenant, that angered God and He punished the Jews by taking the covenant away from them and giving it to another nation bringing forth the fruits thereof like the scripture says.
If the nation He gave it to was not the Arabs, then what nation did receive the covenant?! And if God didn't give it to any nation then the scripture has not been fulfilled!
If Jesus came to die for the sins of the world why did he say this:
Luke 22:42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
He's beseeching God to save him from death!
James 5:16 The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
That means it carries weight with God!

Oh, the grandeur, such a supreme looking elder or elders, all robed up,
playing one upmanship.
Where in the Holy Scriptures (Bible) is it written, Mary Magdalene was a prostitute?
Where does the bible say Adam and Eve ate an apple? Noah took just two of every animal on the ark? Jonah was swallowed by a whale? There are a lot of things people who don't read the bible for themselves tend to believe.
It's common knowledge...Mary Magdalene was Jesus' mistress.
Nowhere, in any translation of the Bible, is Mary Magdalene called a prostitute (or former prostitute). She is listed in Luke as a woman who had been possessed by seven demons; I've heard that in the Roman Catholic tradition these demons are said to represent the seven deadly sins, one of which is lust.
Many poor translations (or preachers) conflate Mary Magdalene with several other Marys, or with the woman taken in adultery (who is nameless), or the sinner (also nameless) who washes Christ's feet with her hair. None of these is accurate.
Long story short, anyone who thinks Mary Magdalene was a prostitute has not read the Bible.
"It’s common knowledge…Mary Magdalene was Jesus’ mistress."
And hundreds of years ago it was common knowledge that people's temperaments and health were controlled by the four humours, and you needed to bleed them with leeches to improve their health.
Common knowledge is often not right. It helps to actually read the Bible and see for yourself.
Catholics had been taught that for years (that she was a prostitute). It is no longer supported. I guess Chris Matthews doesn't know that. Many Christians believe she could have been Jesus' wife. One day we will all find out if that is true or not.
Where in the Holy Scriptures (Bible) is it written that Jesus was married?

If you don’t believe in God. Then everything you do is for NOT.
